The Psychedelic Furs have launched a music video for “Wrong Train,” a monitor off the brand new wave outfit’s 2020 album, Made from Rain.
The black-and-white clip was directed by photographer and filmmaker Hans Neleman, who drew inspiration from work made by Psychedelic Furs frontman Richard Butler. The clip includes a compelling collage centered round sequences wherein Butler covers his face in paint. The pictures and movies that Neleman and Butler made have been then handed over to Peter Sebastian, who digitally manipulated them for the ultimate minimize.
“‘Wrong Train’ explores the theme of a disintegrating relationship and the idea was to deliver something rooted in a more abstract realm rather than illustrating the lyrics literally,” Neleman mentioned in an announcement. “I photographed and filmed Richard while painting his face as if he were delivering an art performance.”
Butler added: “‘Wrong Train’ continues the black and white textured, mysterious feel of the previous videos from Made of Rain. It was a pleasure working along with Hans Neleman on this project. The creativity Hans, Peter Sebastian, and their team brought shows in every frame. Much like in paintings, imagery in this video is altered to where it is seen in an entirely different way.”
The Psychedelic Furs launched Made from Rain final July marking their first album in 29 years since 1991’s World Exterior.
